Hello fellow Goblin overlords!

STRAIGHT FROM THE DEVS: We are excited to share with you that the work on the best Goblin Tribe Simulator on the market is progressing really well!  After long months of hard work and dedication, we are pleased to announce that Goblins of Elderstone will premiere on Q1 2018 on Steam Early Access!

About Goblins of Elderstone

Rule over your chaotic kingdom and raid dungeons and villages to keep feeding your ever-growing tribe. Be the whatever kind of Goblin King or Queen you want! In Goblins of Elderstone, the choice is yours. You can be wise and industrious or create a trade empire, or through the power of your gods be a conqueror and show the world the power of your goblin forces.

Main Features

- Freeform city building - Goblins don't like orderly straight lines, so there is no grid-based city building.

- Large resource and crafting tree - With over 30 different resources that can be gathered, crafted, traded or raided, your goblins will always have plenty of work to do.

- Clan, World and Divine politics - Use a combination of fast talking, gift giving, violence and threats to keep your clan and council in line. Use these same action in dealing with the other rulers of the world and even your chosen gods.

- War, Trade or Faith - Chose to play as either a conquering warlord, a shrewd trader or the powerful chosen one of your gods.

- Scout, Raid, Trade or Pilgrimage - Goblins don't really farm so as your tribe grows in size you will need to form your goblins up into trek parties and send them out to raid and pillage dungeons and other towns.

- RPG Story Moments - Elderstone is an ancient place and each story told in it is unique. Deal with traveling strangers, evil overlords, cunning dragons or benevolent gods. Stories written by Edwin McRae - the writer behind Path of Exile and other amazing games.

- Defend your tribe - Darkness lurks around every turn, protect the tribe from roaming monsters or pesky adventurers. Fight off enemy raid parties and retaliate with your own.

- Survive winter - winter is harsh with extreme cold, lack of resources and the presence of undead creatures. Preparing for each winter is crucial to your tribe's survival.

About Lost Goblin

We are a very small, but fierce indie studio based in New Zealand. Founded in 2014 with the dream of making small, high-quality, independent games. Gustav Seymore is the creative chief and founder of Lost Goblin.  We released our first game, a simple tower defense mobile title in February of 2015 and then sought out and found funding late 2015 for our current project, Goblins of Elderstone, a goblin tribe simulator for the PC market. This funding allowed us to go full time for a time and add a few talented goblins to the team. In September 2016 Goblins of Elderstone was finalist in the Kiwi Game Starter. Our Kickstarter campaign helped us bring the project to the finishing line and build a community around the game. Having been picked by the community through greenlight on Steam, we are heading to our Early Access release.

  • Franchise Hockey Manager 4 Review

    There's something just so fun and satisfying about being able to take the reins and make a team in your own image, getting realistic answers to those “what if” questions that you have sitting around the TV with your friends watching the real-world counterparts of these games. In that, FHM 4 definitely succeeds, and is better than its predecessors, and I feel confident in saying that OOTPD is creating the best, deepest and most responsive sports sims that have yet been created. That said, these games still have a lot of progress to make, particularly in presenting the actual matches and, a less-solvable but still-real issue, in being approachable and not exhausting.

  • Bomber Crew Review

    Bomber Crew is a rich strategy sim that gets you into the action quickly. The low poly art style will make more bearable the tremendous death of your crew’s airmen, as your plane falls to pieces around them. As for the repetitive nature of missions, it will either become old hat, or, a necessary grind to get the most out of your plane and deal head on with the game's growing difficulty.

  • Mushroom Wars 2 Review

    Mushroom Wars 2 is a wonderful title to play and an amazing competition to watch. There’s so much to talk about, anticipate, and be surprised by, that you should expect this title to live on for many, many years. The developers have been truly successful of creating the tools for a competitive player to use — and then getting the hell out of the way; Zillion Whales leaves us with a trendsetting, unrivaled masterpiece, and then lets us play it the way we want to play it.

  • Ayo: A Rain Tale Review

    Ayo shares with its audience a sincere message encapsulated by game, and continues the progression we have seen recently of video games used as a vehicle beyond the immediate capacity for ‘interactive entertainment.’ Despite a clunky camera and some problematic puzzles, this platformer boats a solid foundation, with promise of several hours of enlightening fun.

  • Total War: WARHAMMER II Review

    Total War: Warhammer 2 is one of the greatest real-time strategy games made to this date. And this is entirely because of the rock-solid and fully-earned reputation that Creative Assembly has built for itself over seventeen years and over fifteen Total War real-time strategy combat games. If you care about strategy, this isn't just a game, it is the game.

  • Tracks - The Train Set Game Early Access Review

    Tracks: The Train Set Game Early Access scratches the itch to build wooden tracks and trains as an adult, without you having to buy the wooden pieces. Tracks, developed by Whoop Group, is a wooden train tracks simulation with several modes of gameplay and challenges. With the ability to design your railroad in either an open environment or a modeled room of an apartment, you can build and place the tracks however you want. There is a variety of track pieces, stations, and decorations that allow you to be free with your creativity. After you finish building, you can drive your train around and experience your creation.

  • A Hat in Time Review

    A Hat In Time has grasped the title of the highest-earning 3D indie platformer ever funded on Kickstarter, and it’s no stretch of the imagination to see why. The story, the play, the graphics, everything it has instills in gamers one of the most comforting and thrilling nostalgic experiences in recent game development history. This platformer is itself a perfect modern game, with all of the classic staples players know and love, rather than being just an old game made in the present day; in a world of constant evolution and innovation, few things are as comforting as a nice easy blast from the past.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.
